Emily & Adam – The Boathouse at Sunday Park Richmond, Virginia Wedding Invitations

Emily and I first bonded over our mutual love of Lilly Pulitzer – I’m pretty sure we spent more time at our initial consultation talking about what each of us got at the Lilly sale, than we did talking about invitations. So – I knew that working with her and Adam was going to be SO much fun!!

Emily & Adam wanted to incorporate their wedding florals into their wedding invitations, as well as lots of southern details.

Since they had a vision for their invitation, but like most couples weren’t sure exactly the layout they wanted, we started with rough sketches to brainstorm what they most wanted their wedding invitations to look like!

Below are the rough sketches that I created!

We ultimately picked the second invitation option, but pushed the florals to the outer edge of the invitation. That gave their names & venue a little more breathing room. It’s important when designing wedding invitations that you value the overall aesthetic, but also the readability! With some of your special guests being older, we want to be sure that the information on each card is large & clear enough to be easily read by all guests.

One thing both Emily & I keyed in on from the start was that gingham had to be included somewhere! We ended up including it on their response card, which made for just the cutest little card!

Then – we bring the sketches to life! I just love how Emily & Adam’s fun, bright wedding colors made this invitation suite feel like a southern party that Lilly Pulitzer herself would be honored to attend.

Finally, it’s time to take a look at the whole suite together! See that gorgeous liner? You guessed it, we loved the peachy pink gingham on their response card so much, that we added it to the liner as well!

Looking at their wedding invitations just makes me grin from ear to ear, because they perfectly convey their bubbly, happy wedding style.
